Adidas Flashback Winter History
The Adidas Flashback Winter is based on the silhouette of the Adidas Dragon, a classic running shoe that was originally released in 1971. The Dragon was the among the first running shoes to have an upper made of nylon. It was also a little lighter and flatter than the other Adidas classics which had thicker soles and heavier upper linings.
A few years after its release, Adidas revamped the Dragon’s design by adding a toe cap and a rubber toe bumper. This new and updated silhouette proved to be highly popular and influenced the design of newer Adidas footwear which included the Flashback.
The Flashback debuted in December of 2016 in two colorways: black and pink. The model carried that old-school silhouette but had that modern feel through its metallic upper knit with shiny Lurex thread. It also had a faux leather heel patch and suede heel overlay. A winter edition, the Flashback Winter, came out after. This shoe had a suede and mesh upper and a waterproof finish to make it suitable for winter wear.
